Richard van den Engel

CEO

I was born into the car industry and despite spending some time working in architecture and accounting in Auckland, Hong Kong and London, I was drawn back to the Waikato and the automotive world in 2012. In late 2018 I moved into the Toyota/ Lexus business and it’s a real privilege being part of New Zealand’s largest vehicle brand and delivering on its unrivalled customer experience. I look forward to meeting all our customers soon and if I can be of any service please just get in touch on the links above.

Hi, I’m Johnnie, also known as John. I started in the motor Industry in 1985 at a small sales yard in Auckland then in 1987 I joined John Andrew Ford Auckland sales team where I set about creating a customer client base for the next 18 years. In 2005 I headed overseas where I lived in North Wales for approximately 9 years. I returned to good old NZ and ended up on the Coromandel Peninsular for a couple of years until I moved to Te Awamutu where I now live and work for Ebbett Toyota.
